‘FABRICATED LIES’ | Lumad Group: Stop using Lumad to extend Martial Law

December 8, 2018 – A group of Lumad students and teachers slammed on Saturday the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) for its “fabricated lies” in order to extend Martial Law in Mindanao.

In a statement, Save Our Schools (SOS) network said the AFP is “twisting the truth” to hide its real agenda to extend military rule over the region.

“The public should know that the AFP is the real terrorist and number one human rights and children’s rights violator!” Eule Rico Bonganay of SOS network and Salinlahi secretary general said.

It also pointed out that the group has documented 535 cases of attacks on Lumad schools under the Duterte administration’s martial law in Mindanao.

“The AFP keep on repeating lies just to make it the truth but the Filipino people are wiser than that. The Filipino public is not buying the AFP’s deviousness. They want us to veer away from their real agenda and that is to extend Martial law in Mindanao and continue with plundering Mindanao’s vast resources,” Bonganay added.
